... ...nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> my priority is putting people back to work in america. they're suffering in this country. and we talked about evidence. look at the evidence of the last four years. >> a lot of my colleagues are really encouraged by what they saw tonight. i think they saw somebody ready to run this thing. it's going to be exciting the last four weeks of the campaign. >> mitt romney may have eased republican concerns with his sharp performance but it also asked members of his party asking where has he been? utah's republican senator orrin hatch who joins us on behalf of the romney campaign. good morning, senator. so let me ask you this question. where has this mitt romney been? >> i have to say, i don't think the coverage has been totally fair to him in the past months. but i know mitt very well. we know him better than anybody. he made the best winter olympics in the history of the movement and wind up with $100 mill
and educator. >> i mean there actually is extra credit for losing creatively if you are a current office holder. if you are a senator or governor and going to go back to that job then, in fact, there are ways if you lose you can lose and still retain your position, for example, as mccain does as a particular kind of voice within the context of the senate. but when you are as romney said many, many times in the primary, an unemployed guy, then what happens is you simply become sort of a speed bump in history. >> now, jeff, you followed a lot of campaigns. i'm sure you remember when people thought senator obama was losing. are people counting romney out too early and does that help him in any way? >> they're not counting him out of the obama campaign. the whole team in chicago and else where across the country is working really hard on their ground game. they want democrats not to feel overconfident, despite the fact that the polls are good, despite the fact that he's doing well in the swing states. they see this as a race that will be close and don't want their voters and supporters to forget th
in the nebraska legislature, i said there are four priorities -- public education, public safety, public infrastructure, and taking care of those who cannot care for themselves. that applies to our federal government as well. there are people that need help, and government needs to help those people. that is a given, and to make comments on both sides in trying to divide this country and divide the people of this country, that serves no purpose. people sometimes need help, and government should be there for them. >> i have been more careful looking for the video cameras when i am answering questions. [laughter] there is a grain of truth in it. i do not think a social security beneficiary is a moocher or a disabled veteran is a moocher. we have made commitments and we cannot afford to keep them. enormously important programs, but it is a $60 trillion unfunded liability. it is not fair. fischer said nobody over 40 should not have to pay more. we have got to solve this problem, and i believe that the social security plan i have endorsed, that is the foundation for balancing our budget. it i
of the challenges i see is just a lack of education with the teams that are managing the social media efforts, especially mitt romney's. >> are you nervous about this? >> yes. >> i actually see -- >> let me take a step back. not even voting, hopefully one day that will come. but registering to vote, we have this ram shackle, rick et i system of voting. about a dozen states have automated registration. i can go online and register to vote. new york is one of the last states to do that. most states don't and they can. it's the state legislatures, it's the governors, it's the secretary of states who are saying we don't want to go there. well, why? we can all -- >> we can't all understand it. >> because of the en franchisement of people that would bring about. >> one of the challenges with incumbent changing voting rules, any incumbent always got elected under whatever the current voting rules are. >> you want to keep the system you got elected under. we know from states that have done that, it costs less to register people automatedly. you get more people to register and hence more people to vot
the right wing, how. whenever the president named a popular policy, more spending on education, more money on medicare, he was for it and he would attack the president for things that were unpopular. so the question becomes can you effectively tie mitt romney to the republican party and its core commitments, both how it acts in the house and the things he has said during the republican debates. and that never really happened tonight. but those of course are the facts of the matter. the idea that mitt romney won't cut taxes on people at the high end of the income scale apreposterous. i think you would agree. obviously if the republicans get into power they are going to cut taxes at the high income and he got on stage tonight and said no. >> romney's problem is that this debate is in 2012, not 1812. we have things we can hit a button to show what he has said before. no doubt mitt romney was at his best tonight but his best is not good enough. when you look at the fact that he's saying that taxes will not go up on the middle class, yet he is proposing all the way through this campaign, dealin
down the middle state? >> it is one of the best educated states in the country in terms of college graduates it is the best educated state in the country. we really are a microcosm of the country. a lot of coloradoens came from other states. and so it's a nice place to battle out the country's elections. and as you probably pointed out earlier we have gone all sorts of ways in presidential elections. we have elected democratic governors. i think the coloradoens take a look at the candidate and vote for the person they think will do the best job for colorado and the country. >> it seems to me in watching what i feel like the conversation colorado voters are having with each other is that the president thinks women voters and social issues are the key to the reelection and the romney campaign thinks talking about the deficit is a winner here. what say you? are both on the right track to get to 50? >> i think it depends on which base the two parties are trying to get out. obviously the democratic party with its so-called war on women is trying to make sure it gets the turnout from tha
with a dull, rusty blade than on that stage that last night? >> does he wants to support education? he says he won't cut education. that is different from congressman paul ryan's budget, who is the guy that you conservatives champion as the truth teller for your party. the list goes on and on for taxes as well. so the guy you're saying who showed up yesterday, if the scorecard is correct, is as far from a conservative, a re masum you can put on the table. if you were honest, that's not the guy you would vote for, maybe someone in the middle, a moderate republican. but you a staunch conservative would not vote for mitt romney, the one na showed up last night? >> well, one of the things -- your question, of course, answers why i've done what i did the last five years trying to stop him from being the nominee, but he did effective things defending conservative values last night. if you look at one focus groups one of the networks did of undecided voters in colorado, his numbers were the highest when he talked about the role of government freesh government, freedom for the individual, the founding
and education and keep that momentum flowing. . >> let me give you some of the reaction that's been coming in. mitt romney's campaign issued a statement saying this is not what a real recovery looks like and he will create 12 million jobs. then this is what david plouffe had to say just a short time ago on chuck's show. >> i don't think we should focus on the politics today. this is obviously showing we continue to recover from a horrible recession. the recession wasn't an accident. there were policies and reasons that contributed to it. and, you know, reckless wall street behavior, tax cuts for the wealthy unpaid for. these are the same policies mitt romney wants to return to. >> so what does the president do with this? he's about to speak in virginia in the next hour. >> i don't tell the president what to do. look, these numbers show some signs of hope. it's time for both campaigns to recognize what's real. we have huge structural unemployment in this country. it's going to last for years. the numbers are going to go down by a percentage point here and there. the voters deserve honesty abou
four years, in terms of our education system, developing american energy or making sure we're closing loopholes for companies that are shipping jobs overseas or focusing on companies creating jobs here in the united states, or closing our deficit in a balanced way, all those things are designed to make sure that the american people, their genius, their grit, their determination is channelled and they have an opportunity to succeed. and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing a fair share and playing by the same rules. you know, four years ago i said that i'm not a perfect man and i wouldn't be a perfect president and that's probably a promise that governor romney thinks i've kept. but i also promised that i would fight every single day on behalf of the american people, the middle class and all those who are striving to get into the middle class. i've kept that promise and if you vote for me, i promise i'll fight just as hard in the second term. >> governor romney? >> thank you jim, mr. president and thank you for tuning in this evening. this is an important election an
in education and investing in infrastructure, responsibly bringing down the debt, so his is a voice that we think is a very powerful voice in helping to tell the president's story. we think he's going to be a great advocate for us. we're excited he's giving us that time and we're excited to have him out advocating for the president on the trail. >> brent, hypothetically, let's say the president is re-elected. what's his first order of business next year, is it immigration reform? is it climate change? what's going to be, jobs notwithstanding, because i know that's going to be the laser focus, presumably, besides job creation, then what? >> look, the second term, if we're lucky enough to win this campaign, really is an extension of all the work we've been doing through the first term. you said jobs, obviously. the economy is job one. we need to make sure we re-elect president obama, so we can build off the economic process we have started to see as we've turned this economy around. we need to move that forward, not go back to the policies that mitt romney is advocating that would actually hu
to retire deficits and our parents and grandparents used to investing in education and innovation and rebuilding our country in order to create more opportunity for the middle class. so, i think that the, i think that the president, you know, was keeping the debate focused on the questions, answering those questions. think what most people saw at home tonight were not any new ideas really from governor romney for a job creation. i didn't hear one. i was listening very closely. his trickle down theory is the same stuff we heard before. you know, and he, you know, do more tax cuts and somehow we'll grow jobs instead of deficits this time. that is not the way the arithmetic works. i thought the president pointed that out with typical dignified reserve he brings to the highest office in the land. >> we appreciate you joining us, sir. we'll check in with you at the next debate. interesting comments. i would even say reading the governor's body language, that wasn't like, this was not a full throated endorsement of the obama performance. bill maher, who donated a million dollars to pres
't afford to gut our investments in education or clean energy or research and technology. we can't afford to roll back regulations on wall street banks or oil companies or insurance companies. that is not a jobs plan. it's not a plan to grow our economy. it's sure not a plan to strengthen our middle class. we have been there, we have tried that. we're not going back, we are moving forward. we have got a different view about how we create jobs and prosperity in this country. this country doesn't just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top. it succeeds when the middle class gets bigger. our economy doesn't grow from the top down, it grows from the middle out. we don't believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country, but we do believe in opportunity. we believe in a country where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules. that's the country we believe in, that's what we've been fighting for for the last four years, that's what we are going to
. if people want those tax cuts they're looking for him. who won't cut education, who insists his health care plan covers with people with pre-existing comment. the same guy who said his 47% comments were wrong. >>> also we're beginning to the learn more about the flawed strategy that led president obama to lay a debate egg wednesday night. best not happen again. >>> we mentioned the unemployment drop dropped sharply. >>> finally, let me finish with 7.8% jobless number, what it means, and why some people don't like looking at it. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past 2 1/2 years. this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. more americans entered the workforce, more people are getting jobs. today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to the score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to the turn back now. we've made too much progress to r
like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. snoop folks, have you checked us out on facebook? the "politicsnation" conversation is going all day long. today's hot topic was the right wing voter fraud coming out of florida. tammi says, they accuse the democrats of shenanigans when they are the ones up to no good. and dana says, nice try republicans, but we gotcha. nice one, dana. we've got the full report on that fraud, by the way, coming up next. >>> but, first, we want to hear what you think. head over to facebook and search "politicsnation" and "like" us to join the conversation that keeps going long after the show ends. my doctor told me calcium is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release. >>> tonight i'd like to introduce you to the hms romney. that's right, the hms romney was actually a real ship. sent to the british harbor in 176
the best education system in the world and give, as i said before, some real strength and security to middle-class families. >> is the 47% comment the game changer so far? does the obama campaign feel this really has put the wind at your back? this is a clear distinction about who cares about the 100% and the 47%. there's new tape from paul ryan that has surfaced. he doesn't sound too different from mitt romney. here's ryan talking about people who rely on government assistance. here it is. >> before too long, we would become a society we were never intended to be. we could become a society where americans are takers and not makers, 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> doesn't had this show the american people what romney and ryan think about struggling americans? >> absolutely. my favorite thing is mitt romney said it was inelegantly stated when he said about the 47%. i hope that mitt romney e gets a chance to elegantly state what he said about the 47% of the american people not caring enough to take respo
education and health care. tracie potts is in denver for us covering all the details. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the pressure was on for romney to perform, back up his ideas with details, taking on one of the most skilled debaters in modern politics. the point was to make differences clear. >> you said you would cut the deficit in half, it's four years later. >> the way we do it is $2.50 for every cut. we ask for $1 additional revenue. pay for by asking those of us who have done well to contribute more to reduce the deficit. >> reporter: the president insisted romney would spend $5 million. >> math, common sense and history shows it's not a recipe of job growth. >> everything he said about my plan is inaccurate. >> reporter: medicare -- >> cutting from medicare to balance the additional cost of obama care is a mistake. >> if you repeal obama care, and i have become fond of this term, obama care, if you repeal it, those seniors are going to pay more for prescriptions. >> reporter: the exchange over health care and jobs. >> i don't know how the president could come into
and education. he's got a specific plan to do it. he set the goal of creating a million manufacturing jobs and laid out a plan how to do it to end tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. he has a plan to reduce the cost of college tuition and further reduce our dependence on foreign oil because of the plans he's implemented we're at a 16-year low. i think you'll see him delve into those details tonight. we'll leave the zingers to the saturday night li"saturday nig t re-enactment and mitt romney. >> i have not said zinger and now i have. is that going to be enough for the american public? >> no. it's not actually. you know, all due respect to what's going on in chicago but the fundamental problem for the president is not just about the economy, it's the political system as it currently stands. and he has lots of specific plans, he had a jobs bill lined up, he's had these plans for some time. the question is, can anyone execute on anything within this environment? if the projections hold true and i'm sure ben in chicago and the president won't want to accept the projections but if
, better education systems. >> "the washington post's" chief correspondent dan balz joins me now. you watched so many of these debates and posed eight questions that you think sets the stage for tonight. >> right. >> let's talk about first what's at stake here. the first debate, the first face-off between the two men. >> the first debate is always the most important. it draws the biggest audience. the stakes for both president obama and mitt romney are big. but obviously bigger for mitt romney because he's had a bad couple of weeks and i think there is more pressure on him at this point to do something that changes the nature of the debate, changes the nature of the race, gives people an opportunity to take a fresh look at him and i think that's what he'll be trying to do tonight. >> what do you think the winning strategies are? your second question. the winning strategies for each side. >> the winning strategy for governor romney is to do two things which are not easily done together. one is to be pretty aggressive on the president, to go after him, to attack him in ways that he's no
